Conditions Report: Tuesday, January 2nd 2018, 6:17 am

Good morning shredders! Here is your daily dose of Mt. Bachelor conditions:

Freezing fog in town getting you down?  Escape the gloom up here at Mt. Bachelor this morning and come make some turns on the hill. Groomed terrain is still the plan with a full grid of smooth corduroy ready to dig into. Low tide early season conditions do exist so please keep a look out for obstacles, marked and unmarked.  Mild winter temps with clouds moving in this afternoon, forecasts are calling for winter weather to return later in the week. It will a great day of skiing and riding on the mountain today, have fun out there.

It’s going to be another busy day – at the ticket center, in the lodges and on the mountain. We are fully staffed and are prepared to offer the fastest, friendliest and most-efficient service we can provide, but on a busy holiday the reality is there are going to be some lengthy lines in places. We apologize in advance if that is the case.

On the snow, please ski/ride with extreme caution, as the snow coverage is very thin in places and there won’t be as much elbow room you might be used to experiencing. That said, bring your patience, your positive attitude and your excitement for a fun-filled day making fresh turns at Mt. Bachelor on 2,000 acres of open terrain.

Tips for Holiday Visitors

Arrive early to enjoy the most time on the snow. Breakfast starts in West Village Lodge at 7:30 a.m. and our Mountain Gateway ticket sales center at West Village opens at 8:00 a.m. Come up early, beat the traffic, get a close-in parking spot, enjoy breakfast and load the chair right at opening time.

Consider eating lunch at our mid-mountain Pine Marten Lodge. It’s the largest lodge at Mt. Bachelor with the most seats & tables. Two restaurants and an espresso shop serve traditional American fare, Mexican specialties and quick snacks. And if the sun makes an appearance the scenic vistas of the Cascade volcanoes are spectacular from the 7,800 ft. vantage point. For the fastest service and most elbow room in each of our restaurants, plan to eat before 11:30 a.m. or after 1:30 p.m.

If you’re interested in taking ski or snowboard lesson to improve your skills with one of our professional coaches, you’ll want to start your day at West Village – our primary base area. Our lesson programs are exclusively headquartered here during the holiday period.

Parking is free at Mt. Bachelor, but some premium close-in parking spaces are available for $20 at West Village. Look for the signs directing you towards PAY PARKING as you enter the West Village parking area.
